Enhancements to the DOM

Go to the next issue (open or closed)
Go to the next open issue

I'd love to see some DOM enhancements if you have time, these are currently features I have to use other platforms(xtrader) to achieve:

1) In the DOM volume profile, please have an option to reset the number to "0" for the current price, and increment it with each buy/sell. Once the price moves away, the normal total of volume at that price is shown.
2) In the DOM, please add 2 columns, one for "filled at bid" and one for "filled at ask". That way when a price is being traded, you can see how many trades have hit each side.
3) In the DOM, please enable an option for a volume delta profile, showing cumulative at-ask and at-bid figures, bonus points if there is a histogram!
4) In the DOM, please show the changes to current bids and asks, once the price reaches a level. This would mean that if the price is "100", and there are 50 bids at 100, and 50 asks at 101, the column would show "0" next to both of those totals for bids/asks. If 10 bids are added, the column would show "+10", if then 30 bids were taken away, it would show "-20". This feature would be to show insight into the adding/pulling of bids and offers at a price.

Thank you for all your great work, and your excellent platform!

Current functionality shows the current trades at bid/ask for the last trade in parenthesis next to the price - an option to have this number increment cumulatively as long as the price does not move would be a nice addition. Otherwise an order of "500" may flash for a fraction of a second, and be replaced with "1". No way for my eyeballs to notice this without also watching time & sales, which would take my eyeballs away from the DOM(bad).

Another enhancement along the same lines is the ability to place lines on the DOM. Currently it automatically will show the days low and days high. Being able to add our own lines to the DOM to show levels like previous close, pivot points, or other arbitrary levels would be highly useful to me(and likely other DOM traders).

I've attached a screenshot of the DOM I use in order to see this information. Even just showing trades at current price for as long as that price holds would be invaluable.
